Sercurity light

Sounds like you have a problem with the wiring in the column.
The sensor in the lock cylinder sends a signal to the PASS module behind the speedo when you put the correct key in and turn to on.
You may need to take the column apart and replace the harness to the lock cylinder.

01 camaro sercurity light flashing and car wont start

This is a failure in your antitheft system. The ignition is not reading the key properly, or the ignition is not sending the "ok" signal to the theft computer properly. (Theft Deterrent Module) Either way, the car is not starting due to the failure in this system. This is proven by the SECURITY light. The hard part is finding the broken link in the system's chain. This site will help you understand the problem, along with a possible 100% fix if you decide to go that route.

Red sercurity light flashes in my truck

You could try re locking the doors then unlock them. Then open the hood and disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for 2 minutes. Hook up the battery and start the truck. This will flush the PCM's cache and restore everything to its normal state.

My car wont start the sercurity like flashes all my lights do come on when i try to start my car but it wont kick over when i try to start my car

If the light is flashing it may be an issue with the passlock sensor.Here is a process you can try to reset the passlock. If this process does not work you may need to replace the ignition tumbler and passlock.
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key

My VW Touran ( 2 months old) rear wash/wiper not working. Had it back to dealership who tell me nothing's wrong. I think maybe a fuse but don't know which it is

Be sure that the back door is really closed. Close it quite hard and check. I've heared of others with this problem, and they had to close their back door harder...
